There were 12(5 candidates in aIL I Much interest was taken in the con test by evervme in Chelan and the borders of adjoining counties. Votes were sent to the store from ns tar east us Wilson Creek and as far west ns Leavenworth. Jack Rarey. by a per onal canvass, secured most of the votes from tbe outlying towns. Jen nie Anderson's suppoiters were almost entirely Wenatchee people. The steam boat companies and the hotels did the most ro swell Miss Anderson's score. The race from the start was strenu ous. Miss Anderson took the lend from the st:irt and held in until about three w u eks ago when Jack Rarey forged ahead by ifiO votes. Tiie foll owing count he fell behind 1,000 votes and was forced to the secmid place hv« Mi*s Anderson til the cornt at noon or Thanksgiving day, Jack Rarey again took tiie lead by 600 votes. Miss Audrson's supporters rallied to her assistance yesterday, rue hotel buying £200 worht of provisions merely that they might cast tbe votes for Miss Anderson, and at 11 o'clock she again took tbe lead and gained steadily un til the end of the contest. The contest aroused great interest among tbe patrons of the store and many wagers were made on the result. Jack Rarey he-t $5 against himself.

Nearly everyone throughout the entire county was in term ted in our contest and worked for c er another oi tbe candidates. The management of the store is more than pleased with -the interesttaken in tbe contest and highly gratified at the resales it achieved.

The undisputed honor of tbe west ern football championship was won by Chicago by tbe close score of two points, earned on a salety touchdown in the first halfsecond by the splendid work of Captain Catlin, of Chicago, but also by tiie poor judgment of Clrark, of Michigan, iv trying to run back a punt or Eckersall 's. which bare ly reached the Michigan goal line.

But the contrary was the case. Trick plays almost invariably were unsuo cetsfnl.
